2 planning and practice is an element of an overarching quality improvement strategy that the program in Victoria pursues. Other elements include the implementation of person centred assessment and the Active Service Model approach, and refocusing services to have a wellness promotion and enabling approach for people who use services. These elements share the common goal of responding to the specific characteristics and circumstances of each person who seeks services. Diversity encompasses the range of special-needs groups who are specified in Victoria s current review agreement with the Commonwealth, which specifically names people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, people with dementia, financially disadvantaged people and people in remote or isolated areas Diversity also addresses the needs of other groups who may experience barriers to accessing services, such as those who experience or are at risk of homelessness; gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender or intersex (GLBTI) people; and people living with HIV. Diversity planning and practice requires population planning to specify the characteristics of the target population in a catchment area, mapping the geographic distribution of groups of people who share these characteristics, and then working out what this means for the way agencies deliver their services. EWHS plan for will consist of the following special needs groups within our 6 Priority Areas Priority Area No. 1 Dementia: Improving access to services for eligible people with dementia, their families and carers and improving dementia friendly environments and social support services. Priority Area No.2 Rural and Social Isolation: Improving access to services for eligible people living in rural and remote areas and improve access to social and recreational connections in the community Priority Area No 3 Mental Health: Promote positive Mental Health programs and improve service response to eligible people with a possible mental illness Priority Area No 4 Cultural Diversity: Recognising and accepting each persons individuality and responding appropriately Priority Area No 5 Aboriginal: Improving access to services for people from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander back groups.
